  • At heart, Something Corporate find themselves somewhere between the quirky, piano-driven sound of Ben Folds Five and the power pop angst of Marvelous 3 and Semisonic. The bittersweet mid-tempo "Cavanaugh Park" boasts lush, dramatic keyboards, setting a vibe that is almost at odds with the lyrics. "Punk Rock Princess" is as catchy as the song's name would suggest, while the bratty, self-proclaimed anthem "If You C Jordan" sounds like a second cousin to much contemporaneous neo-pop-punk music. Staying corporate, "Drunk Girl" opens with Boston-influenced guitar harmonies that lead to the most endearing sentiment on LEAVING THROUGH THE WINDOW. The song finds a man in a dubious situation, but virtue keeps him from betraying his heart; not something corporate, but something refreshing.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (10/3/02, p.104) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...They craft suburban ennui and high-school angst into slick, hummable punk...the secret weapon here is sharp songwriting and nice keyboards...Derivative, but not boring."

Entertainment Weekly (5/31/02, p.108) - "...Though these guys have the same catchy choruses and jump-up-and-down energy of modern-rock counterparts like Sum 41 and Blink-182, they're not nearly as juvenile..." - Rating: B
